My friend Jolene (who edited my dissertation!) recently wrote a book entitled A Different Dream, to help parents dealing with critically or chronically ill children. I just ordered a copy of it myself.
Recently on her blog she linked to a video from Joni Eareckson Tada, illustrating how two specific people are dealing with grandchildren with disabilities, R.C. Sproul and Chuck Colson. In this video these men have had to apply practically what they preach. It’s worth the 30 minutes to watch.
